The Sud-Ouest borough mayors’ office has released the latest public meeting agenda, which includes the first discussion of the Plan particulier d’urbanisme (PPU) involving Projet Griffintown:

Avis de motion – adoption du projet – Règlement modifiant le Plan d’urbanisme de la Ville de Montréal (04-047) pour y introduire le Programme particulier d’urbanisme du secteur Peel-Wellington (Griffintown) (dossier 1070960026)

The council meeting is scheduled to take place at the borough mayors’ office, at 815, Rue Bel-Air, 2nd floor meeting room. The session starts February 5th (Tuesday) at 7pm. If you wish to ask a question during the public questions / comments portion of the evening, you need to sign up beforehand — the signup will take place at 6:30 immediately prior to the meeting.

I am not sure, but I have heard a rumour that due to the interest in this project, it may be moved to the auditorium at the ETS — I will ask the local office and keep the blog updated with the latest news.d  nope. (Updated Feb 3rd) As in comments below, please note this is a procedural council meeting about the adoption of the PPU, not a public consultation per se, but it is the first time it’s shown up on the agenda of the public council meetings so far. It will still be held at 815 Bel-Air.

Transcripts and notes from previous council meetings can be found at:

The meeting hall is on Bel-Air, one street over from Rose-de-Lima, between St-Jacques and St-Antoine.

Thanks for the offer — I think we already have a couple of people asking pertinent questions, so please don’t feel like you have to ask anything on our behalf. For now, this will be at 815 Bel-Air as this is just the procedural council meeting, not the public consultation per se – those start closer to the end of February.
Cheers, and see you there!

Pingback by Le conseil d’arrondissement discutera de Griffintown « Urb2345’s Weblog

Tonight, the council will vote on, and probably adopt, a change to the borough’s urban by-laws to give free reign to Village Griffintown’s developper. What is unfortunate here is that not only the elected officials, but also Montreal’s urban planning department is tayloring the city by-laws to allow the project to be built as is.

We’re going to see a lot of dissent expressed in tonight’s meeting. Many urbanists and elected officials in the SO borough are not happy with the city’s executive committee and their plan of action. Plus, they don’t have any power to change anything UNLESS they yell high and loud about their discontent…opinions and points of view are the only tools at their disposition right now.
